4th suicide in 3 weeks reported in Alaska Native village

 


ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A fourth young adult has killed himself in less than three weeks in a remote Alaska Native village, the latest in a tragic cycle in which each of the previous three deaths influenced the subsequent one, authorities said.

A 21-year-old man was found dead Saturday at his parent's home in Hooper Bay, a village 530 miles west of Anchorage in a region with disproportionately high suicide rates, Alaska State Troopers said. The death follows three others that began Sept. 24 with the suicide of a 26-year-old man.
